Crist Confidant Sen. LeMieux Betrays Crist

You know what they say: If you want a friend in Washington … don’t befriend Sen. George LeMieux.

Talk about betrayal! Sen. George LeMieux says the he’ll support the Republican nominee over his old friend Charlie Crist: “I will support our Republican nominee and will continue to do everything I can both in Florida and across the country to increase the number of Republicans in the United States Senate.”

A current Republican senator saying he’ll support the Republican nominee wouldn’t be notable, except for the fact that LeMieux was appointed to the seat by Crist and was Crist’s chief of staff and was one of his closest friends and political allies. In fact, when Crist appointed LeMieux every one knew it was because LeMieux would keep the seat warm for Charlie as he ran for it.

Some “Charlie Crist Republican” LeMieux is.  He could have at least stayed neutral, but I guess LeMieux is not the loyal friend type.

Anyway, Go Kendrick Meek!

Financial Regulatory Reform to be Major Agenda Item for April-May Senate Work Period

April 14, 2010 Leave a comment

Fresh off the health care victory, the Senate will now tackle Financial Regulatory Reform, a bill designed to foist tougher rules on Wall Street whose reckless malfeasance almost crashed the world economy last fall.  Sen. Dodd on the Banking Committee already passed their bill, and we are awaiting Sen. Lincoln on the Agriculture Committee to clear derivatives regulation legislation.

Republicans will try to stall this initiative to kingdom come just like they tried to do with health care reform, but this debate promises to be much shorter due to the political danger that some Republicans find themselves in if they are seen as Wall Street flacks.

The Senate plans to finish the financial regulatory reform bill by Memorial Day Recess in late May.  The House of Rep. already passed their version late last year.

In Honor of the Speaker and Her Smackdowns!

House Passes Health Care Reform Marking Total Victory for Obama, Dems, and the American People

March 21, 2010 Leave a comment

While highly flawed and much work needs to be done in improving health care reform in subsequent years,  this bill still contains important consumer protections, provide 32 million Americans with health care, and will lay the foundation for health care as a universal right of all Americans much like Social Security secured the right of security in old age.

What is unfortunate in this whole situation is the behavior and conduct of the GOP.  They have been culpable for spreading every conceivable lie and purposefully misleading their none too smart tea party base who, as we all know, are still stuck in the 60’s when they hurled derogatory epithets at certain minority Representatives.  As the Congress moves forward, the Republicans should learn from their defeat and ditch the toxic and angriest elements of their base.

Now with great pleasure, I am erasing health care reform from the Agenda.

UPDATE: House passes health care reform 219-212.  Reconciliation is to come next.

UPDATE 2: Here’s the video:

Stupak STUP-HATES Catholic Nuns!

March 18, 2010 Leave a comment

In a Fox News Interview, Rep. Bart Stupak decided he was going to hate on nuns of all people.

Congressman Bart Stupak, D-Mich, responded sharply to White House officials touting a letter representing 59,000 nuns that was sent to lawmakers urging them to pass the health care bill.

The conservative Democrat dismissed the action by the White House saying, “When I’m drafting right to life language, I don’t call up the nuns.” He says he instead confers with other groups including “leading bishops, Focus on the Family, and The National Right to Life Committee.” 

Ruh Roh, the nuns are not pleased:
